According to The Cowboy Channel, The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo follows a tournament-style format with five separate brackets composed of three rounds per bracket.  The top four money winners in each bracket then advance to one of two Semifinal Rounds, where then the top out of each Semifinal advance to the Finals. Following the Semifinals, there is one last chance to make the Finals, where the top 10 contestants in each event who did not advance to the Finals from the Semifinals compete, and the highest score and fasted time advances. The Finals for the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo are on Championship Saturday Night, February 25 at 8:30pm ET/7:30pm CT, and is when each event winner who has earned the most money at the end of the Finals will be crowned the San Antonio Rodeo Champion. All of the action can be caught on The Cowboy Channel, you won’t want to miss it!
